Gratitude

Three years of work on a project incurs many personal and professional debts that are hard to summarize and impossible to repay. The generosity of our various communities has been a real joy, and we hope we have done your faith in us justice. From reading drafts of exhibit text to playing with access prototypes, we have asked a lot of anyone who knows the Longmore Institute, and are grateful for the opportunity to name everyone who volunteered their time to help the Patient No More project. But just as there is always one indispensible thing one leaves behind when embarking on a long journey, we know that we might have missed an invaluable name or two: if this is you, please call us up and we'll do our very best to make it up to you! Above all, we're deeply grateful to the participants in the 504 Occupation who taught us a thousand lessons large and small. Because of you, the world is a better place, and can be better still.
